Associate Members

Not an engineer, but still want to support WES? Our Associate membership is the perfect way for male engineers, and men and women who are not engineers, technologist or scientists to support the aims of the Society. We are proud of the diversity of our membership and welcome individuals from all backgrounds and areas of expertise. No-one is excluded or disadvantaged by not having the "right" qualifications or background. Subscription is at £52 per annum with a concession rate of £26 for unemployed and retired members. As an associate WES member, you enjoy the same benefits as other membership grades, with the single exception that only a full member is eligible to stand as president. Benefits of joining WES and becoming a member include:
